James Cameron, Now $350 Million Richer


James Cameron will reportedly earn more than any director ever for a single film, raking in $350 million for Avatar, between 12 to 13 percent of its 2.7 billion dollar box-office haul. Cameron made around $97 million for Titanic: The huge jump in his payday is attributable, in part, to Avatar’s strong DVD sales. This is great news not only for Cameron, but humanity, as he now has even more money with which to solve the ongoing oil spill and help us explore deep space. [Deadline]
